No one on the staff of Samadhi Research Institute (SR) nor its specialists are physicians nor therapists and Samadhi Research Institute (SR) does not provide, nor should it be used as, a substitute for medical/psychiatric advice, diagnosis or treatment. SR provides general education only.
In the course of our work together we may discuss nutrition, lifestyle, medications, and health alternatives such as healing, vitamins, homeopathic, ayurvedic and holistic preparations, all of which are intended to provide you with information. We encourage you to discuss these with your physician or healthcare provider. They are not intended to replace medical consultation or to treat any medical condition. It may be unwise to discontinue any prescribed medications abruptly or without medical consultation.
Energetic healing, counseling, coaching and somatic sex education are not psychotherapies or medical treatment. All bodywork is offered to adults 18 years old and over only, is one-way touch (under the code of ethical standards of the organizations within which we are certified), given only upon request, and solely for one’s benefit and learning. Pastoral counselors may not be licensed mental health practitioners. The federal government has indicated that HIPAA is not applicable to clergy who solely provide religious healing. Clergy-penitent privilege is the legal mechanism that prevents clergy/counselors from being required to disclose confidential communications in a court proceeding.
